So today ~ this week, If and when insulted, bless back. When authority mistreats you, bless back. for in so doing you will be setting yourself up for blessing! We squander so much blessing with our need to have the last word, defend our rights or get even and when we defend ourselves we set our accuser up as our judge so, stay calm, be truthful and handle unfair treatment God’s way! Fade into the background and Let Him be your defense. He’s our Ancient Of Days and has been around since the beginning of time. He knows the end from the beginning and nothing slips by Him. He got your case from the inside out and He knows how to help you win it. So ~ toss your battle axe aside and put on your spiritual armor for you’re going to need it! Step out in faith protecting your mind with the powerful Sword of the Spirit, God’s Word ~ and do battle with love and peace ~ the believers most powerful weapons!
Ephesians 6: 10 -18
“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
